French Breakfast Radish

French Breakfast Radish

This French heirloom, treasured for over a hundred years for its mildly sharp flavor and bi-color beauty, is tender, crisp and spicy to the palette. A novel radish, not so good with your morning coffee or tea, is treasured among salad gourmets as both flavorful and as a lovely garnish.

You may either shred a few as you would beets or carrots into your favored lettuce leaves, or serve it on the side as a decoration almost too cute to eat. Simply make small uneven cuts around the outside, place the radishes in ice water, and watch them open into floral shapes!

Storage and Cooking

To store, remove the greens and keep wrapped in plastic in your fridge for up to a week.

While this radish is rarely used for breakfast, it offers a good dose of vitamin C and works great thinly sliced on sandwiches or simply between two buttered slices of bread. As an added bonus, the greens may be boiled and added to your other greens, soups or stir fries.

Did you know?

Organic farmers and experts in India organized to address the agriculture crisis facing the nation's 700 million farmers. Poor yields, degraded soils, and expensive chemical inputs arising from the cultivation of pesticide intensive crops, including genetically engineered cotton, have devastated India's rural economy. Crop failures and crushing debt led over 300 Indian farmers to commit suicide between May and July. To address this crisis, farmers from all over the country joined together August 2, 2006 to create the "Organic Vision 2020," a long term strategy to shift the country's farming focus back to ecological and traditional organic practices.
